The Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness

An international group of prominent scientists, led by computational neuroscientist and neurophysiologist Dr. Philip Low, has signed The Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness in which they are outlining convergent evidence indicating that non-human animals have the neuroanatomical, neurochemical, and neurophysiological substrates of conscious states along with the capacity to exhibit intentional behaviors, and consequently discarding the notion that humans are unique in possessing the neurological substrates of consciousness. Stephen Hawking was the guest of honor at the signing ceremony.

In May 2013, India moved to ban dolphin shows. Dolphins were granted “non-human personhood” status by the government of India.

On June 12, 2013, elephants, lions, bears, tigers, monkeys and other wild animals are no longer permitted in circuses in Colombia under a bill approved by Congress.

On the evening of December 20th 2013, it was confirmed that President Obama had received, via a member of US Congress, a copy of The Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness.
